.italian beef.

This is a recipe I got from a girlfriend of mine who lives in Chicago. It is *so* fast and *so* easy! Here's what you need:
  • 3-4 lb Beef roast
  • 1 bottle or can beer
  • 2 packets italian dressing mix
  • 1 jar pepperoncini
  • provolone cheese
  • crusty rolls

In a crockpot, put your beef roast. Pour the beer on top and add the seasoning packets. I like adding the pepperoncini at this time too along with a little of the juice from the jar. These can be spicy so if you have kids, you might want to omit this from the recipe.

Put the lid on the crockpot and turn it on high. Leave this on high for 3 hours, then reduce to low heat and let cook for another 2 hours.

When the beef is done, pull from the crockpot and slice or shred the beef.

Take your crusty rolls and slice in half. Put a slice or two of provolone cheese down and then top with roast beef and some sliced peppers (if you used them).

Ladle some of the broth into a bowl and use for au jus. Delicious!

Serve with salad.

Made this last night and it was so easy & YUMMY! Best part was the whole family ate it. I did leave out the peppers since there was no way my son would eat it. I cut some up and put them only on my sandwich and it was good that way. But it sure would be yummy to have them in there cooking with the beef! Thanks for the great recipe!
